Right now, as you’re eating your Multi-Grain Cheerios over your sink, take a good, hard look around you: Is your sad little kitchen bringing down your domestic-goddess game? The correct answer: Probably.

Escape your unfortunate kitchen reality for a moment and transport yourself to someone else’s. We’ve rounded up the prettiest right here. Everyone deserves to dream.

Bryan Reiss

Exposed brick, mini topiaries, a copper range hood: Just add wine and a cheese plate and we’re basically in heaven.

Jennifer Dyer

Speaking of heaven, a sofa at the breakfast table? Yes, please.

Cortney Bishop Design

Open shelving: the perfect solution if you truly can keep Pellegrino bottles and vintage Coke ephemera organized.


More realistic? Color, which comes as a welcome relief in a room that can trend toward whites and metals.

Anthony Carrino

That said, yellow and stainless is still on point.

Houlihan Lawrence

We’ve always wanted a built-in butcher’s block…and enough space to do 15 cartwheels.

But…we’re not against a tiny but mighty galley kitchen, either.

Houlihan Lawrence

Modern amenities are hidden away in this old-world, French country kitchen.

Bates Masi + Architects

And this one brings the outdoors in with rustic wood for days.

EWM Realty International

Vaulted ceilings and Carrera marble. Ahhh.

Kevin Keim

Or, you know, quirky Japanese dolls and a teeny-tiny sink under the staircase.

Heidi Geldhauser

Say yes to flooring materials that transition into peninsulas.

Edward Addeo

And orange beadboard with open shelving that somehow… works.

Jackson Design & Remodeling

Color pop 1: pink pendant lights.

Peter Rymwid

Color pop 2: this vintage Chambers oven.

David Lauer

Concrete, birch and metal come together for an industrial-chic look that also feels warm and lived-in.

Proof once again that even mini kitchens can have great style (this one’s on a houseboat).

Nar Fine Carpentry, Inc.

Proof that tin ceilings are everything.

Abby Hetherington

And retro fridges always win.

Yuko Matsumoto

Yes, Dear, we will help you slice those peppers.

Specht Harpman

Or eat that one, sad watermelon here in the middle of the forest.
